We’d all like a tall, dark, and handsome guy. But there are other qualities you should look for in a man – more important ones. I don’t want to make this article seem like I’m trying to tell you how to think. I’m not doing that at all. But since you’re a single Mom, these qualities should ALWAYS be among the things you look for in a man you met online…
He has kids of his own that he raises the right way
You’re certainly free to date a man without kids. It doesn’t mean you’re clueless by any means. But I think you’re better off finding a man that already has kids and takes good care of them. He’ll likely be more mature. Men without kids don’t need to be mature. They are – and should be – free to do whatever the heck they want since they don’t have major responsibilities.
A funny thing happens once an immature guy has a kid – he grows up. He’ll already understand what it’s like to raise a child since he has his own. Yes, there are some deadbeat Dads out there. Tons of them, in fact, which sickens me. But I’m sure you’re smart enough to know to avoid those scumbags.
He’s hardworking and responsible
There’s something sexy about a man that works his butt off to raise his family. A hardworking man isn’t only a great father – he’s a great husband. You’ll never have to worry about bills being paid or food being on the table. He’ll do everything he can to make sure money is never too tight.
Being responsible is even more important when raising kids. I know of men that go out and get wasted while the mother watches the kids. This is very irresponsible and you’d be crazy to allow a man like that into your family. A real man takes care of his children first, then goes out to have fun.
He’s fun to be around
I’m not going to go into specifics on this one because everyone’s definition of “fun” is different. But if you can’t have fun around the guy, you’ll never enjoy the relationship. He can be hardworking, responsible, and a great father, but if he’s boring to be hangout with, none of that will matter.
Life is short. Being with a guy that’s not a lot of fun to be around will make your short time on Earth less exciting. Don’t waste your life away with a partner that bores you to death. Find someone entertaining. An awesome sense of humor is a bonus.
